Wheels of a Century THE LAKE FOREST/ LAKE BLUFF CHAMBER OF COMMERCE PRESENTS A “THEN & NOW” CAR SHOW. BY SHERRY THOMAS THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

According to a 1961 book about Lake Forest history written by Edward Arpee, Arthur Farwell (one of the J.V. Farwell boys) became the talk of the town right around 1900 by bringing the first automobile (a black Winton) to Lake Forest. Horses bucked, shied, and became unmanageable as the “new vehicle chortled and roared with the deafening sounds of a threshing machine.” The horseless carriage had arrived and life as the people of Lake Forest knew it would never be the same. On Sunday, October 13, the Lake Forest/ Lake Bluff Chamber of Commerce, the City of Lake Forest, and an advisory committee of “auto enthusiasts” will pay tribute to the role motorcars have played in local culture for more than a century. Titled “Then & Now,” the show will include vintage cars that will be displayed among the most enviable modern collectibles of today. Mark Litzsinger’s 1935 deep red Packard Twelve will be there, as will Claude and Audrey Ohanesian’s Continued on PG 8

SPECTACULAR STYLES NEXT MONTH’S ANTIQUES + MODERNISM WINNETKA SHOW IS THE ULTIMATE DESTINATION FOR INTERIOR DESIGNERS, SHOPPERS, AND COLLECTORS. BY MONICA KASS ROGERS THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

When meeting antique dealer Lee Thinnes at her 1930s Mediterranean house in Winnetka to talk about design, one thing is clear—she’s at home in her work and at work in her home. “I’ve always loved collecting furniture and art from different eras,” says Thinnes, gesturing with a graceful sweep of the arm. “Pulling it all together to create beautiful vignettes is one of the best parts.” Thinnes’ foyer alone is a pastiche of different decades, styles, and textures that work well together in scale and form—harmonizing where they should and contrasting to add surprise and interest elsewhere. At the center of the room there is a 1980s Lucite table topped with a 19th century French ironwork urn. Beyond that stands a 1930 mirrored chest of drawers with original crystal pulls. A 1970’s French Curtis Jere raindrop mirror has a place on the wall, with Samuel Margolies 1930’s aquatint “Builders of Babylon” farther over. And suspended above all? An original 1950s Venini crystal chandelier. The vignette is the perfect visual for a November 8 panel discussion Thinnes is giving with two more experts (New York designer Timothy Whealon and East-Coast antiques dealer Gary Sergeant) at the upcoming Antiques + Modernism Winnetka Show, a fundraiser for Winnetka Community House. Events kick off November 7 with a preview party followed by two days of speakers November 8 and 9. Moderated by Dara Camponigro, editor of luxury design magazine, The Bulletin, the November 8 talk— titled “D2 // Designers and Dealers: A Collaborative Combination to Style and Design”—will give expert insight on how to successfully design spaces that combine different styles, genres, eras, and aesthetics. Thinnes and her colleagues say they are excited about evolutions they’ve seen as designers explore fresh ways to merge old with new in interiors. “Many people have a lot of emotional attachment to or very nostalgic memories of homes they grew up in as children so they may have natural affinities for a certain genre, or collections of family heirlooms in their home. You need to be very considerate of Continued on PG 8

Cusp of Greatness SINGULAR EFFORT AT STATE THIS MONTH WOULD NET ELITE STATUS FOR NEW TRIER SENIOR ALI BENEDETTO. BY BILL MCLEAN

TNSW: Who’s your private tennis teaching pro? AB: “Tina Pisnik, who works at College Park in Bannockburn. She played professional doubles with Kim Clijsters, and her highest world singles ranking was 29th. I started taking

THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

Only five female tennis players in the medalladen history of New Trier tennis—including New Trier East and New Trier West high schools, before the schools merged in 1981— have finished their prep careers with at least one top-three state showing in singles and at least one top-three state showing in doubles. The quintet: Wendy Fix (1990-92), Jamie Henikoff (1984-86), Cathy Van Pelt (1981-82), Kathy Stearns (1973-74), and Kathy Karzen (1973-75). New Trier High School senior Ali Benedetto has a good shot at becoming the sixth to do so later this month. Brown University-bound Benedetto teamed up with current Harvard University sophomore Amia Ross to take third place in doubles at the Class 2A state tournament in 2017. Last year, as a third-year varsity member, she won five of six singles matches at state, reaching the semifinal round of the back draw. Her only losses on the No. 1 singles court this fall have been to reigning Class 2A state singles champion Kiley Rabjohns, a junior at Lake Forest High School. Benedetto’s most significant win to date in the 2019 season was a 6-3, 4-6, 10-4 (super tiebreaker) defeat of Whitney Young High School senior Darinka Stepan. The 5-foot-10 Trevian found time in between her school and tennis commitments to discuss her startling growth spurt; defeating one of her closest friends; where she’d like to scuba dive next; and Roger Federer, among other topics. The North Shore Weekend: What was working for you during your recent match with Darinka Stepan? Ali Benedetto: “It was important for me to play an all-court game against her. I went to the net a lot, hit slices, hit top-spin shots. I felt I had to mix it up often in order to have a good chance at beating her. She’s one of my best friends; we play doubles together in USTA tournaments in the offseason. I gave her a big hug afterward.” TNSW: Your game today, compared to your game during your f irst couple of years in New Trier’s program? AB: “I was small, so small, my freshman year. I was maybe 5-foot-3. I had stopped playing soccer at an early age because I was getting beat up in games. Growing like I did, in the last year or so, has helped my serve considerably, and I’ve been focusing on my overall consistency. It has taken a while, developing the tools I need to use in matches, but now it’s all coming together. It’s nice being able to use power to put shots away early in points. But I’m also willing to grind points out if that’s what I need to do against an opponent.”

TNSW: What do you enjoy doing in your free time? AB: “Traveling, skiing, hiking, anything outdoors. But what I find most enjoyable is scuba diving. My dream is to scuba dive in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia one day. My dad, John, did that and showed me pictures of his experience.”

TNSW: The athletic backgrounds of your parents? AB: “My dad grew up in Olympia Fields and played golf. My mom, Lisa, competed in gymnastics in high school. She has played paddle.”

Baking Onward EXECUTIVE PASTRY CHEF KEVIN MCCORMICK BAKES HIS WAY INTO THE HEARTS OF NORTH SIDE DINERS. BY MONICA KASS ROGERS ILLUSTRATION BY BARRY BLITT

There was a time when the stretch of Sheridan Road just round the bend from Evanston heading South to Loyola University, was home to luxury residential hotels that boasted concierge service and elegant dining rooms. The Rogers Park Hotel and Sheridan Beach Hotel, both built in the early 1920s, were top-of-the-line for fine dining. But those options faded with the Roaring Twenties, and for decades, restaurant choices along this section of Sheridan Road were limited to quickservice, fast-casual and a few family dining rooms. The launch of Onward restaurant in November, 2018, changed all that. Featuring playful, simple, and rustic interpretations of new American cuisine prepared from locally sourced ingredients by Executive Chef Patrick Russ and Executive Pastry Chef Kevin McCormick, Onward is the newest launch from developer Michael Olszewski, who brought Chicago the former Grace restaurant. For McCormick, who grew up on the North Shore, the opportunity to bake Onward’s way into the hearts of Chicago’s north side is a happy challenge. McCormick cut his pastry-chef eye teeth all over the country. After graduating from New Trier Township High School, he attended the French Pastry School in Chicago, and did an externship at the three Michelin starred Per Se in New York. Stints at the James Beard-award-winning Frasca Food and Wine in Boulder, and Atelier Ortega and Coco Love in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, preceded his return to Chicago where he worked at Michelin starred L2O and the North Pond Café in Chicago. But McCormick’s cooking adventures started much earlier than that. Growing up with his siblings in Northfield, McCormick played a lot of football, basketball, and other sports. But when he wasn’t doing that, he gravitated to the kitchen. “I’d go over to my grandmother’s house in Northbrook, to experiment with all sorts of dishes. She encouraged me to cook whatever interested me,” he recalls. “Italian, Asian, barbecue, baking ... you name it. She saw how much I enjoyed it; and I was good at it.” When he was 10 years old, Kevin happened on a Food Network show featuring famous chocolatier Jacques Torres. “He was making classic French chocolates. They were beautiful, and I was fascinated to see that cooking could be both an intensive craft, and an artistic expression. I was completely hooked,” McCormick recalls. With that, McCormick’s cooking experiments ramped up as he tried his hand at the recipes Torres posted. “I tried them all,” Kevin recalls, laughing. “Most of the time, they were a complete and utter failure. It took me three years to realize that you had to temper chocolate before working with it.”

Still McCormick persisted, expanding his viewing repertoire to include Food Network broadcasts of competitive cooking shows. “I especially liked watching the World Pa s t r y Te a m Championships, where pastr y chefs had to prepare showpieces, cakes and other baked goods under intense pressure,” he says. “I’m a very competitive person, and watching these talented chefs compete convinced me that one day, I wanted to do that too.” By the time he was in fifth grade, Kevin’s chocolate making skills had progressed. “I used to

make a ton of chocolates and then take them to school and hand them to kids, saying, ‘Here. Eat this!’ And they did. It was a built-in test market to see how I was improving,” he says. When he was 13, Kevin headed over to North Shore bakeries to learn in a commercial kitchen setting. “Sometimes I got paid, sometimes I didn’t, but I didn’t care about that. I just wanted to learn.” Kevin landed jobs at the Three Tarts Baker y Café, and Tel Aviv B a k e r y, and studied all the baking books and food industr y magazines he could find in his spare time. Meanwhile at home, McCormick’s mother, Karen—

who worked in political offices and was a trustee for Northfield township—recognized her son’s talent and let him do dinner parties where he had carte blanche to create the full menu for her guests. “I went all out,” Kevin smiles. “Mom’s rule was that I could serve no more than 10 courses. But I found a loophole when I discovered mignardises (sweet little tidbits served at the end of the meal.) So I could make dozens of those and expand the possibilities.” The decision to attend the French Pastry School finalized McCormick’s decision to focus on pastry. “I realized that it could take the rest of my life to even scratch the surface. Becoming proficient at bread and pastries, gelato, chocolate, candy, and breakfast—the full gamut, is a monumental achievement.” Scratching his longtime itch to compete, Kevin had the opportunity to assist Chef Oscar Ortega in multiple competitions while at Atelier Ortega in Colorado. McCormick then trained and competed at the Mondial Des Artes Sucre in Paris, where he was recognized by a global judging panel for Team USA. But as McCormick spent the next several years honing pastry and bread baking techniques in restaurants, his views matured from, “create the most artistically perfect expression of a pastry,” to “create beautiful breads and pastries that guests will love and come back for.” “It takes maturity, but as you grow in the industry, you learn this,” he says. “Pastry and breads are a perfect way to connect with guests. We may practice a lot of complex methods in our kitchens and compose playful presentations of dishes that invite guests to try something new. But people need that bridge, that ‘something familiar’ that helps them take the leap into new territory. What vehicle does that better than bread or dessert?” McCormick is already excelling at building that bridge: His Black Forest cake won Best Dessert in Chicago honors at the new “I Crave Festival” in July 2019. And some guests have come back to Onward expressly for McCormick’s breads. Baked daily using a natural yeast from a levain starter, options range from pain de compange (Onward’s signature sourdough) to seeded bread, Semolina bread, classic baguettes, focaccia, ciabatta, fruit and nut bread, Alsatian-style beer bread, olive bread, cheese bread, onion brioche, rosemary croissants, herbed butter croissants, potato garlic rolls, and Parker House rolls. So has McCormick’s mom asked him to create any 10-course dinners back at home recently? “No,” laughs Kevin. “Now she’s perfectly happy to bring them all to Onward.” For more information, visit onwardchi.com.
